Our branch manager in Forest Hill is David Lewis, who is an experienced and knowledgeable property professional with an excellent reputation in the area. David has worked in the property industry for more than a decade, operating in both the private and public sector. He has held a variety of roles during his career with Leaders, from his time in property management where he provided a consistent, level-headed service, to his work in the lettings market, where he displayed an ability to win business, negotiate deals and drive the company forward. He has also worked in three other local branches, meaning his knowledge of south London is second to none. In his time with Leaders he has been a member of the Acquisition Support and Training team, in which he was responsible for making sure staff are given the necessary tools to enable them to carry out their duties to a high standard. It is undoubtedly a position where ample patience and reassurance is required.

Whether you are a tenant looking for a new home or a landlord hoping to find an agent to manage your property we can promise you David and his team will go the extra mile to achieve great results on your behalf. David said: “Forest Hill has always been a popular place to live and offers residents a great choice of properties, excellent schools, good transports links into central London and a range of parks and open spaces. "We have a prominently located office and staff who are really passionate about property and have a wealth of experience. In fact we have several decades of property experience between us - something our rivals would struggle to compete with. Whether you are a landlord, tenant, buyer or seller, please pop into the office for a coffee and a chat."

What Forest Hill's customers say

Recently moved with the help of leaders, would highly recommend anyone looking to rent in the forest hill area getting in touch with them. I'm normally not too sure about letting agencies having had a couple bad experiences! We dealt with one of their colleagues, James H who was friendly, helpful and made the process super smooth and stress-free. He was very professionally and explained the process throughout, keeping us up-to-date and facilitating communications between ourselves and the landlord. The period between us finding the property and our chosen moving in date was very small and we really appreciate how he worked hard to make sure all the necessary tasks were completed on time which is normally a confusing and stressful process. Would highly recommend!


I had an awesome experience working with Leaders and specifically James. This was my first time of renting a property in the UK and James made the process seamless for me. In addition to the way he follows up via calls/emails, explains otherwise complicated (remember it's my first time?) processes etc, he is friendly and possesses good vibes that make a property welcoming at first visit. Kudos to James and the Forest Hill Team for the awesome job they do - birds of a feather... ಠ_ಠ


Both Jenny and Selwyn were great. They answered emails promptly, very friendly to talk to and offered great customer service. Selwyn also helped me get out of a tight parking jam by volunteering to push my van backwards which I was very grateful for after a very long day of moving and travelling through London. Tenant referencing does require a lot of time and paperwork, especially if you have a guarantor, so please be aware of this. But, this is part of the process and Selwyn was very helpful in keeping me informed on the things that needed to be completed.
